Gunther wants Brock Lesnar
WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther is looking for a match with Brock Lesnar after their brief showdown during this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble match.
In the match, Gunther (who broke the record for the longest duration in a standard Rumble match) traded blows with Brock Lesnar before Brock Lesnar was eliminated by Bobby Lashley.
During an appearance on The Ringer Wrestling Show, Gunther said that Brock Lesnar is top of his list of dream opponents.
“Brock is the one that has to happen at some point. I think I made him my personal biggest obstacle. The [Royal Rumble] was literally the first time I met him. [It was] brief, but that moment that we had in the Rumble was great because that was all I needed out of it. It was basically like a real-life confirmation that the audience is up for that. They want to see it.”
At WWE WrestleMania 39, Brock Lesnar will face Omos, while Gunther will defend his Championship against an opponent yet to be determined.
On this Friday’s SmackDown, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, Karrion Kross, and LA Knight will compete for an opportunity against the Imperium leader at WrestleMania.
